Hi, we are landing at YVR from Los Angeles around 9:30am. Do we have enough time to catch a flight to Tofino, leaving from the South Terminal, at 11am?
That will be difficult, but it's possible if you can get someone from Tofino Air to pick you up at the terminal and your flight from LAX is on-time.
I have to transit through Vancouver airport to fly to India. My flight from Edmonton AC 255 reaches there at 8.05 pm and my flight to Newdelhi AC072 departs at 9.40 pm. Will 1 hr 35 minutes is enough for the connection? Do I need to go through security check in again? Thanks
If I'm flying in on Horizon/Alaska airlines through YVR to Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific do I need to collect my bags and reprocess them after immigration?
If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags in Vancouver.
Hello, I am flying from Vancouver to Toronto as an international passenger. My flight is at 13.00 hrs. What time do I need to be at the airport please?

Hi, I am going to book flight from Toronto to Portland (PDX) via vancouver. The transit time in vancouver will be 1 hour 10 mins. Is this time enough?
Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hello. Do I need to leave the secure area to get to US CBP for a connecting flight to the US? I'm arriving from Regina at 0710 and departing to SFO at 0840. Enough time? Thx
In Vancouver you will proceed directly to USCBP if your bags are tagged through to SFO. You have enough time.
Hello. I have to fly tomorrow at 4pm. I am going down to the states to do work and will need to apply for the work visa once I get to the airport. I am an engineer applying under NAFTA with a nexus card. How early Should I get to the airport. I think 12pm but I am unsure if that will be enough
Yes, that should be enough time. Issuing a work visa shouldn't take more than 30 minutes, 60 tops if they're really backed up.
Is 2 3/4 hours enough time to connect LAX-YVR-HKG arriving in YVR on Westjet departing for Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific using separate tickets. Thanks for any help.
That will be difficult. You will have to go through Canadian immigration, claim your bags, re-check them with Cathay, and go through security. It's not impossible but it leaves no time to spare.
Thanks, that helpful.

Yes, that is enough time.
I have a 1 hour and 46 min to connect with my international flight to Australia coming from Seattle. Will i have enough time to make my flight? Will I have to go through security and or customs? I am flying AIr Canada on both flights.
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is go through Canadian passport control and to your departure gate.
